Our faith must be bigger than the price tag. I understand the economical impact that COVID-19 is having upon America. Some large business execs want to hurry the pace to bring back society to the way it was just a short while ago. This of course Is foolish talk as even when the spread ceases people will not forget the pandemic. The handshake may become a thing of the past. That might not be a bad idea with the world population far exceeding the earth’s natural capacity. Viruses will become more sophisticated over time. There is however an answer to this if we allow our faith to be bigger than the price tag.
Our technology is increasing at an ever-rapid rate. When our quantum computers combined with artificial intelligence advances to a level in which we can create not only vaccines but cures in days rather than years the worry of dying young will vanish, but world population may still be a problem. One might feel that cities in the seas, creating cities in places with less population density is an answer. America and the rest of the world must become very serious about colonizing space. The moon and Mars will be humanities next homes. Rather than having countries we will have self-governing planets with an alliance for the advancement of humanity into the further most reaches of space.
Nothing Is Possible When We Lack Faith
None of the above is possible when we lack faith. Humans gravitate to the negative. What is this negative I speak of? The love of money, in creates a plethora of evils in our society. We do not have the faith to resist the temptations and succumb to our love of money protecting what is known as a “good” economy regardless of the human destruction in which it causes. There are real people today including President Trump who believe we must get back to work now. Why? To get the economy moving again. Some have said that we should even go so far as to sacrifice our lives for the love of money. The sad truth many of these people are within so called “faith” communities.
Humanity Needs a Reset
Humanity needs a reset and COVID-19 might just be that reset which humanity needs, right now. To admit our love of money and to then become free from the fear of lack which is holding us back. When we worry about things, those things tend to happen in our lives, and this is magnified when billions of people are putting negativity into the world. We get off on the negativity, we embrace it even when it hurts us. We feel comfortable in which we give up control. Like having an abusive partner we keep going back from a false sense of control over our lives.
It is time to do some deep soul searching. To look into the dim mirror of our souls, brave enough to be honest with ourselves and the dark human nature. Start taking steps by writing down our fears. “I can’t afford the rent, groceries, healthcare, etc.” Admit that this scares you, then start to tell yourself you can afford, you can do, you are not fearful! Embrace the evil negative thought patterns placing themunder your control. We will get though these strange times, it is what we do afterwards which will determine our future for either good or evil. We can go back to business as usual as slaves or we can create a world of universal Contributionism in which all people share in the richness of all the resources that are available to us. Along with the material benefits we will receive the most important benefit, peace of mind.
